What's the current state of ProRes in the Windows world?

I'm thinking more seriously now about jumping from the Apple ship. One of my hesitations is the enormous amount of ProResHQ projects that are currently in my--and my client's--pipeline. Certainly, I'll keep all my Mac stuff going, but where are things, these days, with Windows and ProRes? And, for that matter, Media Composer, Windows and ProRes?

I haven't encountered any problems at all working with Prores in either MC 6.0 or Premiere CS5.5 on windows. Of course, it is decode only with these apps, but apart from that is really is no different at all compared to working with it on the Mac side. I export into DnxHD (or Cineform) on Windows.

Cool!

Can I wrap ProRes in MXF on Windows, or do I need to transcode DNxHD back to ProRes on a Mac for clients who require ProRes delivery? And does transcoding still have bad gamma juju, or has that mostly been worked out?

No re-wrapping to Prores on windows unfortunately.
As far as gamma is conerned, same as on the Mac side. Regular import = relateively slow and gamma shift (in my case length x 4). AMA, no gamma shift. Trancoding AMA file to DnxHD MXF via consolidate/trancode = very fast and NO gamma shift (in my case length x 0.8).
If you need to deliver Prores to your clients you could either encode the Dnx output on the Mac, or play-out on the AVID and capture on a Mac or Kipro or you can get Episode Engine for Windows and encode your Prores jobs on the windows side.
Yes, Engine costs a few bucks but you but you'll easily save that money with the hardware over a relatively short period of time.

There's hope yet, though!

No exporting directly to, but at least with the FlipFactory route (Server OS required) you have a transcode option for special deliveries.

Does Cinec Gold not support importing R3D files? I've tried this and it just doesn't work. Running windows 7 64 bit
